Smith, Steven J.; Rasch, Philip J. (2012): The long-term policy context for solar radiation management

Smith, Steven J.; Rasch, Philip J. (2012): The long-term policy context for solar radiation management. In: Climatic Change. DOI 10.1007/s10584-012-0577-3

"We examine the potential role of “solar radiation management” or “sunlight reduction methods” (SRM) in limiting future climate change, focusing on the interplay between SRM deployment and mitigation in the context of uncertainty in climate response."
